Fabric added in December: 1 1/2 yards
Fabric added year to date: 21 7/8 yards
Fabric used year to date: 143 3/4 yards
That brings my 2016 total to 121 7/8 yards of fabric used. It is my highest net total since I started stash reporting in 2010. A good chunk of it was the 80 yards that I donated to my guild for the quilt show mystery bags. I am really pleased with the totals for the year and look forward to another good year of using more than I buy in 2016!
I also like to look back over my totals from year to year, and here's how that looks:
|Added by year||Used by year||Net Used by year|
Not bad - over 400 yards used in the last 6 years. It hardly makes a dent in the stash, but it does feel good to see the numbers! I am also glad that this year I bought the least fabric of any year. A fair amount of what I bought this year also was used this year,so in reality, there was only about 10 yards truly stashed.
I've got a good start already in January and I will be reporting on it the last weekend of the month as I shift to monthly stash report. Hope you're happy with your usage in 2015 and starting off well in 2016!
